    "Ce livre n'est pas une autobiographie. L'idée ne me viendrait pas d'écrire pareil ouvrage. Par ailleurs, durant mes jeunes années à l'école, et juste après, ma vie a été émaillée d'incidents que je n'ai jamais oubliés. Certains furent drôles. Certains douloureux. Certains déplaisants. C'est pour cette raison, je suppose, que je me les rappelle tous de façon si aiguë."

    Un racconto inquietante che vi farà sapere chi sono le vere streghe. Non quelle delle fiabe, sempre scarmigliate e a cavallo di una scopa, ma quelle elegantissime, somiglianti a certe signore che probabilmente già conoscete. Come fare a individuarle? Bisogna stare attenti a chi porta sempre i guanti, a chi si gratta la testa, a chi si toglie le scarpe a punta sotto il tavolo e a chi ha dei denti azzurrini, perché tutto ciò serve a nascondere gli artigli, i crani calvi, i piedi quadrati, la saliva blu mirtillo: tutti i segni distintivi delle vere streghe. Sapendo questo potete evitare di venir trasformarti in topi.
